Film Denied

By  | 

A company that owns movie theaters in Iowa and Nebraska is refusing to show Michael Moore's "Fahrenheit 9-11."

R.L. Fridley, owner of Des Moines, Iowa-based Fridley Theatres, claims that the award-winning film incites terrorism. Fridley owns theaters in Grand Island, Hastings, and McCook.

In an e-mail to company managers, Fridley stated that he believes "Fahrenheit 9-11" emboldens terrorists and divides the country.

"Fahrenheit 9-11" won best picture at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival. Moore also won an Academy Award for his earlier work, "Bowling for Columbine."
